    Strayed #5 is a beautiful book that brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. It even accomplishes something that only the best finales do: It makes up for some of the shortcomings of its previous chapters. Read Full Review

    It's a weird ending, and honestly a bit disappointing, considering it's such a strange turn from the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    All that said, this book was not one of my favorites. I can't in good conscience give Giffoni a failing grade for his writing. However, I can't give it too high a praise either. The art is most definitely the saving grace of this issue and worth the price of the book alone. Read Full Review

    What a massive disappointment! After four solid and engaging issues, the final part is the comic book equivalent of a photo montage scene. How many splash pages? I am staggered that this was what was served up: one of the most egregious examples of failing to deliver a proper conclusion to a story that I can remember (in any medium).

    It is now clear that Carlos Giffoni didn't actually have a story to tell. He had an idea for a gimmicky variation on a tried, trusted, and well-worn story about imperialism and despots, but there was no new story. Thanks for wasting my time (not to mention my money), Carlos.

    I am so disappointed.
